    Just to be clear:
    20-24% = 20-24.9%,
    15-19% = 15-19.9%
    etc.

    I didn't find a thread specifically about body fat percentage in search, so this thread is the place to discuss the subject.
    I'm currently 16%, I look slim but don't have much muscle definition, and my face isn't as lean and structured as I'd like, I'm hoping at 10% body fat, I'll look my best.
    Are you at your ideal percentage?

    I’m also around 16%. I saw your comment of 10% target. For me that is too much difference. I can see my abs now but at time I feel like I have a little pooch from too many beers. I would like to lose 1% for the summer.

    I'm about 200 lbs +/-5lbs.
    Any leaner would start to look a bit strange, if I was that way 24/7

    I've been as low as single digits, but it's hard to maintain...probably 10 to 12% atm..

    I’m 157lbs at 12.5% body fat. I look good but I wanna get down under 12% for better definition. ya the lower you go the harder to maintain. you have to be stricter with your regimen.

    I've never had a reliable test done. I've taken the body measurements, and had someone use calipers. I guess it's in the mid to upper teens. Hard to say.

    I'm currently cutting and around 10%. The lowest I've gotten to was 5%. I was super hungry, not a lot of energy but for the week or 2 I had it, it was great! haha!

    Very hard to accurately measure body fat. I had two different devices that send waves through the body to work out body fat. There was a 5% difference between the two.

    I’m around 16% as well ..abs /obliques are showing more. Lean muscle mass has grown as well. Too low body fat percentage isn’t good but 13% is a good goal for me! I was low as 7% but that was before I started working out seriously ! Was a twig with abs ..lol but that’s all changed!

    It's very hard to manage body fat as one ages.

    In high school, I competed at 11%
    In college, I stayed around 16%.
    Post college and after marriage while I played, referred, and coached, I was 19%.
    Now retired, I'm 22%

    Not sure about others, but I live on the keto diet, More a lifestyle than a diet. Keep at around 16 to 17% fat.

    I am at about 13%-14% and I would like to go down to 10% while not losing too much fat on my face.
    How many times per week should I eat meat and in which vegetables with good quality proteins?
    how many fruits per days without getting fat ( fruits=sugar)?
    should I eat fruits between meals or during the meal ?
